Hi, Steve here. First let me say that i am still getting used to the grips on Blackhawks. I mostly shoot N frame S&Ws .I shoot a full range of loads out of these, witch includes 357,41,44 mags and 8" barrels. My 41 mag Blackhawk has a 7" plus barrel. So with that said, i am looking at what others are shooting through this configuration of Ruger Blackhawk.Target & plinking loads.
